David A. Wilson has been named the new partner-in-charge of Thompson Hine LLP's Washington, D.C. office, effective March 1, 2011. He succeeds Charles L.

He has extensive experience in both state and federal courts, before administrative agencies, and in domestic and international arbitration forums. His cases have involved trade secret claims, breaches of license agreements, cancellation of a software joint venture development and marketing agreement, and the termination of an exclusive software distribution contract. Wilson has also represented clients in investigations conducted by the Securities and Exchange Commission, congressional committees and various federal agencies. He has led or participated in many internal corporate investigations, including audit committee and special committee investigations.

Wilson received his J.D., cum laude, from Georgetown University Law Center and his A.B., cum laude, from Harvard University. He is admitted to practice in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Massachusetts, as well as numerous federal district and circuit courts.

"We are very pleased to name David as partner-in-charge of our Washington office," says David Hooker, Thompson Hine's managing partner. "We look forward to his leadership of the office. David's commitment to client service will help drive our efforts to exceed our clients' expectations for the work we do. I also want to thank Chuck Freed for his five years of service as partner-in-charge in D.C. He did an excellent job for us in that role and will continue to serve our clients after transitioning his responsibilities to David."
